Dallas Fort Worth Child Support Lawyers
Helping Individuals Facing Child Support Issues in the DFW Area, Houston and Across Texas
One of the most challenging issues to resolve in a divorce proceeding involving minor children is often the amount of child support provided to the custodial parent. Whether your children live with you or not, you want their needs to be taken care of. At the same time, you want to feel that you are not being held accountable for more than your fair share.
At Bailey & Galyen, our attorneys have years of experience with family law matters, including issues related to child support. We built our successful practice on a commitment to a high level of personal attention and responsiveness, combined with a dedication to meet the highest standards of legal excellence. We emphasize communication in all our interactions with clients, listening carefully to your questions and concerns, and providing consistent updates so that you always know where you stand and what your options are.
Comprehensive Child Support Counsel
In Texas, child support is calculated according to a formula provided by the state. The calculation includes the income of both parties as well as the number of children you have and the amount of time spent with your children. In certain situations, the court may also consider the children’s special needs or interests, including college education and participation in sports, music or other instruction. This is not mandatory, however, so you will need experienced and knowledgeable advocacy if this issue affects you and your children.
At Bailey & Galyen, we will review all proposed child support orders for compliance with Texas guidelines and to ensure that all income is included in the calculation. We have the experience to ensure that alternative methods of compensation, such as self-employment, seasonal income or commissions, are properly factored in.
We protect the rights of men and women at all stages of a child support dispute, whether you have just filed for divorce and need to establish a temporary agreement while your divorce is pending, or your divorce is final and you need to request a modification to address a change in circumstances.
